VERY SOON after the discovery of America by Columbus in 1492, Kansas fell within 
the region claimed by England, based on the exploration of the Cabots. Spain 
next claimed this land as a result of the discovery of the Mississippi by DeSoto 
and the exploration of Coronado — the first white man to tread the Kansas soil. LaSalle 
next won this land for France. Then it became part of the United States in the Louisiana 
Purchase of 1803. 

Kansas was first made famous by the Kansas-Nebraska Bill of 1854, and by the 
struggle between the free-state men and the pro-slavery forces that followed. The 
first legislature met at Pawnee, near Ft. Riley, the center of the United States. It 
soon adjourned to Shawnee Mission, near the Missouri border, where it passed the 
famous pro-slavery bogus laws. This was the heroic period of Kansas history when 
Governor Charles Robinson, Senator Jim Lane, and John Brown were among the chief 

First the steamboat and later the railway reached as far west as Kansas City (first 
known as Westport Landing). From this point the pony express raced for California, 
and the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails made Kansas a pathway. In this western world 
the Indians, being crowded from their last hunting ground, waged their final war, while 
Kansans played well their part in the winning of the prairie. 

On January 29, 1861, President Buchanan signed the bill that admitted Kansas 
to statehood as the thirty-fourth star in the blue field of Old Glory. On February 9, 
Dr. Charles Robinson was inaugurated the first governor of the new state, and on the 
same day Jefferson Davis was elected President of the Confederate States of America. 
Thus directly was the story of "bleeding Kansas" linked to that of Civil War. Well has 
it been said that "Kansas is the focus of freedom where the rays of heat and light con- 
centrated into a flame that melted the manacles of the slaves and cauterized the heresies 
of state sovereignty and disunion." 

In the supreme test of Civil War, Kansas furnished to the Union army a larger 
proportion of her population than did any other state or territory. "It is impossible," 
says Ingalls, "to overestimate the value of citizenship in a state that sent more soldiers 
into the Union armies than it had voters when Sumter fell." As one of our historians 
has said, "Kansas has a significant and memorable history; the territorial struggle 
converted a wilderness, which had little claim upon the interest of mankind, into historic 

After the Civil War the homestead act, the rich prairie soil, and the halo of the 
Kansas struggle, materially aided by the railroads, all conspired together to make 
Kansas become a great soldier state which grew with startling rapidity. Drouth and 
grasshoppers and prairie fires could not conquer these Kansans now any more than the 
wrath of man could conquer them in the territorial period. Kansas became a typical 
frontier state, a land of faith and hope and charity. The frontiersmen believed in the 
future. They believed in democracy and the square deal. 

As we review ever so briefly the history of our State, we do not wonder that Senator 
Ingalls was led to declare: "The history of Kansas is written in capitals. It is punctuated 
with exclamation points. Its verbs are imperative. Its adjectives are superlative. The 
commonplace and prosaic are not defined in its lexicon. Its statistics can be stated 
only in the language of hyperbole."

Kansas State Agricultural College

®fje College 

state educational institution in Kansas. It is one of the oldest 
colleges of its kind in the world. As a state and national institution 
it was opened to students on September 2, 1863. 

In its sixty-three years the College has made a world-wide repu- 
tation as a superior institution for research and instruction in agri- 
culture, engineering, home economics, veterinary medicine, the 
industrial sciences, and in various closely-related fields. 

Each year students come to the College from all parts of 
Kansas and from about thirty other states and fifteen foreign 
countries. The presence on the campus of students from many 
parts of both hemispheres — students representing a diversity of 
experience, opinion, history, and educational interest — provides an 
interesting and stimulating intellectual and social atmosphere. 
The fact that in their training the faculty members represent one 
hundred and twelve colleges and universities in the United States 
and foreign countries, is an important factor in providing the 
liberality of attitude which an institution must have if it is to be 
truly educational. A further important factor is that the College 
provides, and the law by which it was founded requires, opportuni- 
ties for liberal training as well as for technical training; opportuni- 
ties for training in music, dramatics, literature, history, and many 
other liberalizing subjects. 

The more than five thousand graduates of K. S. A. C. are dis- 
tributed throughout the United States and in many foreign coun- 
tries, where they are exemplifying the ideals that the College repre- 
sents; ideals of sound scholarship, vocational efficiency, good citizen- 
ship, and wholesome living. 

The College emphasizes the importance of well-balanced 
development of the student. It encourages the student to com- 
bine technical training with liberalizing study and activity; to 
work hard and to play well; to be an individual and at the same 
time to be a useful member of a community by subordinating some 
of his individualism to the common welfare; to prepare himself to 
make a good living and to live a satisfactory life.

THE Division of General Science includes the departments which 
impart instruction in general and scientific subjects for all of the stu- 
dents. The technical curricula with rather clearly directed vocational 
objectives include many subjects from this Division which are of 
fundamental service in the acquisition of the technical knowledge, and 
others designed to give the student preparation for intelligent participa- 
tion in public affairs and appreciation of arts that appeal to cultivated 
taste and emotion. 

The Division also administers curricula in which most of the 
characterizing subjects are from its own departments. The curriculum 
in General Science is the lineal descendant of the original single cur- 
riculum which the institution offered for many years, although it has 
been modified so as to be almost beyond recognition. 

Page 20 



of General Science 

THE CURRI CULUM in Industrial Journalism was added in 1910 
and that in Industrial Chemistry in 1919. Through several years 
of gradual approach beginning in 1916 the four-year curricula in music 
were developed and were first offered in full form in 1922. The curriculum 
in Rural Commerce which is now followed by nearly three hundred 
students was established in 1921. The latest candidates for student favor 
are the two curricula in Physical Education one for men, and one for 
women, the freshman years of which are being given this year. 

All of the cirrucula administered by this Division include liberal 
provisions for electives by means of which professional subjects in 
education and extensive groups in science, language or general cultural 
subjects may be chosen.

FARMING must ever be the important vocation of Kansas people. 
The vast expanse of fertile, rolling prairie of necessity must become 
more and more productive to supply food and raiment to the increasing 
population of the world. To accomplish this, the farmer of the future 
must be skilled in the art and trained in the principles of his profession 
and he must be served by town and city business and professional 
men who have a sympathetic understanding of the needs of agriculture. 

Success in farming will come to those who combine high qualities 
of character with good judgment and adequate training in the funda- 
mental principles underlying their profession. Success to the business 
man serving the farmer will result in a large measure at least from a 
clear understanding of the needs of his patrons and of the knowledge 
of how to meet these needs efficiently and economically.

of Agriculture 

THE FOUR-YEAR curriculum in Agriculture, embracing as it 
does, training in so many of the basic subjects that constitute 
the foundation of a general education, is admirably prepared to fit 
young men for both modern farm life and service to agriculture. Well 
balanced ap it is in the theoretical, cultural, scientific, practical, and 
economic subjects, it affords an opportunity for training that rarely 
comes amiss in this work-a-day world. 

The Division of Agriculture provides adequate training in more 
than one hundred useful and interesting occupations, on the farm, in 
the classroom, in scientific laboratories, in packing plants, in green- 
houses, in flour mills, in creameries, in grain elevators, in editorial work, 
in farm managerial and advisory capacities, and in a score of public 
positions serving agriculture. The demand for well-trained men in 
agriculture has always exceeded the supply.

THE MATERIAL basis of our modern civilization is the result of 
science and engineering. More and more is the present era be- 
coming the industrial age. Every labor-saving appliance manufactured 
is an added tribute to engineering attainment. A constantly increas- 
ing number of engineers will be required to maintain and advance our 
present position. A college education has now become practically 
essential for engineering work. 

The general trend in engineering has been reflected in the collegiate 
enrollment in the division which has increased from slightly more than 
five hundred in 1920 to almost one thousand for the present year. 
This division has now become the largest engineering school in Kansas 
and one of the largest three between the Mississippi river and the 
Pacific Coast states.

IN ORDER to meet the demands of students in this region, four-year 
courses are offered in agricultural engineering, architectural engineer- 
ing, architecture, landscape architecture, chemical engineering, civil 
engineering, electrical engineering, flour mill engineering and mechani- 
cal engineering. In addition to these, two-year trade courses are offered 
in various lines of shop work for those who find it impossible to take 
one of the courses leading to a degree. 

The engineering experiment station undertakes research and test 
work of engineering and industrial value to the people of Kansas. All 
of the road materials for use in Federal aid construction are tested, 
and also lubricating oils used by the state institutions.

IN 1873, President J. A. Anderson pronounced the following idea of 
the education of women: 

"By an act of the Legislature this institution has always been open 
for the education of females. What is to be aimed at in her education? 

A girl has a right to an education as precisely adapted to a woman's 
work as a boy's is preparatory to man's work. She has a right to all 
the knowledge which related sciences can contribute to her intelligence, 
adeptness, and efficiency in the art of making a home."

FIFTY-THREE years have elapsed since the pioneer college work 
in Home Economics was offered here in the department of sewing, 
organized under this enthusiastic advocate of vocational education. 
From that time up to the present the Kansas State Agricultural College 
has maintained outstanding work in Home Economics. 

Most of the graduates from this Division enter the profession of 
home-making, but there is scarcely a ranking Home Economics college 
faculty throughout the land in which the Division is not represented 
by its graduates. Today, as yesterday, the Division of Home Economics 
offers "that education precisely adapted to a woman's work," meeting 
by its increased curricula and courses the growing conception of 
"woman's work."

'T MAY be trite to say that we are living in 
a most progressive age, but such is a fact 
nevertheless; and consequently one of the great- 
est educationally as well. 

Progress and education are interdependent. 
Probably each is responsible for the other, but 
certainly progress is dependent upon education, 
or practical and fundamental knowledge, and 
cannot take place any faster than our educa- 
tional development. This is an important fact 
not only from the standpoint of the public, 
but from that of the individual and particularly 
he who has had the advantage of a course of 
instruction in an institution of higher learning 
secured by his residence there. 

Regardless of the standard of academic 
knowledge one may attain, such standard can 
only be maintained by constantly supplementing 
it with recently discovered facts. He, who has had the advantage of a degree 
from an institution of higher learning, must recognize this responsibility. Since 
progress is dependent upon knowledge, one's ability to keep abreast of progressive 
times is determined by his ability to keep himself informed. 

Educational institutions in recent years are coming to recognize more their 
function in assisting those individuals who desire to maintain their knowledge. 
They realize that they must concern themselves not alone with resident teaching, 
but also in assisting individuals, who are engaged in the every day walks of life, 
to develop their fundamental and theoretical knowledge. The activities of mod- 
ern institutions are no longer confined to the campus proper, but wherever the 
individual may of necessity be in the every day business of earning a living for 
himself. These institutions have a vital function to perform in the life of him 
who has a realization that his ability to progress in his vocation is dependent upon 
a constant source of practical and fundamental knowledge.

Btbteion of Summer Retool 

THE purpose of the Summer 
School is chiefly to provide 
opportunities for study to those 
who can not make use of the regu- 
lar sessions. It thus gives to a 
great many teachers and profes- 
sional people the privilege of ad- 
vanced study during a part or all 
of the summer vacation. Also 
many students and investigators 
prefer to work eleven months rather 
than nine and to these the summer 
school offers its wide opportunities. 

The Summer School of 1926 
offered three hundred sixty-seven 
courses in both undergraduate and 
graduate work. The Divisions of 
Agriculture, of Engineering, of Gen- 
eral Science and of Home Econom- 
ics were all represented. Daily public lectures were also given on scientific, 
social and other subjects at 4 P. M. each day. Other special features were the 
School of Community Leadership and the Conferences on High School Leader- 
ship. Many special lectures, historic films, and a patriotic pageant were a part 
of the Summer School entertainment program. 

As a mark of the earnest character of the work, attention may be called to 
the number of graduate students which was greatly in excess of the regular semes- 
ters. This means that a large number of teachers were enrolled taking advanced 
work for a higher degree or who were engaged in research in their special fields. 
Possibly no session of the College serves the state in a larger way or renders a 
more useful service to its citizens than the Summer Session. It offers a great 
variety of work at a time of the year when conditions are especially favorable for 
study, and when a great many subjects can be studied to better advantage than 
in any other part of the year.

THE position of Dean of Women is based on the ideal for students 
of the highest physical, intellectual, moral and spiritual develop- 
ment. Special interests of the Dean of Women include the student prob- 
lems involved in living conditions, health, employment, vocational 
guidance, discipline, and social and religious life. She spends much 
time in serving on committees, in attending student meetings, in 
conference with students, parents and housemothers, but these du- 
ties do not express the deeper significance of her work. It is rather 
a service which has for its aim the effecting of better adjustments 
between students and the faculty, and the world in which they must 
live. Routine duties are the only means to the great end of the de- 
velopment of personality and character by the conscious and compre- 
hensive adjustment of personal and group needs.

COLLEGE records are no longer mere lists of subjects, credit 
hours and grades written down in formidable looking books, row 
upon row, but have come to be chronicles of human events crowded 
into four of the best years in any young person's life. A memory 
book, as it were, to be forever cared for and guarded by the college 

The personality of the student is brought into the record by mount- 
ing his photograph upon the page and so is laid the foundation of a 
record of personal characteristics and to the recorder this girl's record 
suggests womanly sweetness and charm, and that boy's record a pair of 
honest eyes and a frank smile. 

As the record progresses with the passing of the years, it shows 
the organizations with which the student is identified, literary or 
social, and whether he has participated in debates, athletics or other 
of the various contests sponsored by the college. The officers and 
cabinet members of the Young Women's Christian Association and 
the Young Men's Christian Association are shown on the records of 
those so honored. Sophomore and Senior honors and election to Phi 
Kappa Phi are given a prominent place — in short, any special activity 
or honor which would describe the personality and the college life of the 
student is considered an important part of the record. 

Finally, when the last examination has been taken and the student, 
dignified by cap and gown, has received his diploma from the hand of 
the President, a final item is inscribed on his record, "Graduated June 
third, nineteen hundred and twenty-six," and if the recorder can add 
"With Honor" or "With High Honor," the college joins with that stu- 
dent and his parents in the pride of real achievement. And so ends 
the written history of any student, but the memory of the womanly 
sweetness and of the honest eyes and the frank smile will remain in the 
hearts of students and faculty alike.

THE number of faculty members in the various divisions of the Kansas State 
Agricultural College has increased very greatly in the past twelve or thir- 
teen years. Perhaps the most noticeable of these is the increase in the Division 
of Extension. The total number of faculty members employed in this division 
has increased nearly two and one-half times in the past twelve years. Not far 
behind the Division of Extension comes the Division of General Science, Di- 
vision of Agriculture and Division of Engineering. The total number employed 
in these divisions has practically doubled. All the other divisions show a very 
decided increase. The popularity of summer school is shown in the fact that the 
appropriations now have increased thirteen times that which was appropriated 
for the running of this division twelve years ago. The following is a list of the 
total number of instructors employed in the various divisions in 1913; also the 
total number employed in these various divisions at the present time:

^tstorp of Clagg of 1926 

By Class Historian 

EACH CLASS history that shows its unashamed type face usu- 
ally possesses a distressing similarity to every other outgrowth 
of the species. This effort promises to be no exception. 

To begin with, we are quite agreed that the members of the 
class of 1926 have passed through four years of college life, unless 
the point system has necessitated an extended term in certain cases. 
But of the latter group, there will be found very few from this latest 
class of promising young citizens. 

The 1926 class has done nothing that could be marked as extra- 
ordinary in the course of its four years of experience, unless it would 
be the part it contributed to the founding and developing of two 

almost man-sized political parties during its last year in college. 
These organizations served as the means for upholding platforms 
of such purity, the like of which has not before been dreamed at 
K. S. A. C. The chief objective of these student political groups 
is the stimulation of more class interest in the regular semester 
class elections. 

Of course, this class which has occupied most of our attention 
during the last four years, has not spent its entire time at the 
polls nor in burning nocturnal electricity in an attempt to achieve 
the desirable, and sometimes elusive "M" average. There have 
been the regular number of parties, the prom, and numerous other 
activities to break the monotony. Nor has the class failed to con- 
tribute its share of outstanding persons in affairs on the hill; 
athletics, debate, oratory, judging teams, and honorary fraternities, 
all claim members of the class of 1926. 

The members of this year's class have watched the growth of 
the memorial stadium with pride, knowing that they have been 
active in contributing liberally to the stadium fund. 

As we leave college this spring, we have mingled feelings of 
regret and anticipation for what we shall encounter in the world 
outside our Alma Mater.

Junior Claste Tfyixtovp 

GENIUSES are born, not made: Class histories are written 
but seldom read. So once more an attempt at the usual mass 
of unread words will go into the pages of a Royal Purple. 

Like most Junior classes, we started out as Freshmen, and 
most of us hope to attain the heights of a Senior. 

In the year of 1923 one more "mob" of innocent, unsophisti- 
cated freshmen entered K. S. A. C. Like most Freshmen we dis- 
played a great deal of ignorance and were proud of it. As we 
look back over the three years, most of us are still displaying a 
certain amount of ignorance, but are not so proud of it — -or perhaps 
we have merely become accustomed to it. 

It seems impossible for the historian to mention the great 
number of scholastic attainments of the class — as is the usual pro- 
cedure — for we seem to be quite ordinary along that line; making 
about the usual number of Es and the usual number of flunks. 
We have had about the ordinary number of class meetings; about 
the ordinary number of dances, and can only claim an almost 
unanimous subscription to the Stadium Fund. 

Perhaps the one outstanding feature in our college career is 
the fact that many of the leaders and prominent members in the 
movement for better politics on this campus are members of the 
Junior class. 

And after all we have one year left in which to attain great 
things. We may attain them and we may not: But in all events 
we have had an immensely interesting college life and we are 
casting no sorrowful backward glances — -only cheerful ones ahead 
toward one more vear at K. S. A. C.

>opt)omore Class iHstorp 

TO TABULATE, within the space here allotted, all the re- 
markable achievements and activities of the Class of '28 is, 
of course, an impossibility. It would be possible, perhaps, with 
any ordinary class of students, but in our case it is very different. 
To merely list the outstanding leaders would require more space 
than is allotted us. 

Custom has designated us as the Class of 1928. Those of us 
who attend the summer schools or subscribe to the correspondence 
school may by the Grace of God and a few Deans, graduate at 
that time but do not worry, students of other classes, most of us 
will remain long, long after that date to guide the policies of and 
lend an uplifting hand to our beloved Alma Mater. 

As the Class of '28 we can boast of being very active in foot- 
ball, basket ball and track; also in debate and Purple Masque plays. 
More students in this Sophomore class are and will continue to be in 
more activities at K. S. A. C. than any other class heretofore.

5v Class Historian 

IN THE Fall of the year nineteen hundred twenty-five, 
the faculty and older students of K. S. A. C. were greeted 
with a new group of "young green things" called freshmen; 
however, they were alive and going. After enrolling, they 
grew, intellectually, faster and faster. These freshmen came 
from all parts of Kansas and some were from other states. 
Each had his own ideas about how things should be carried 
out and all of these ideas were good ones. 

On October 14th they assembled and elected their leaders. 
These leaders piloted them wisely and safely through the first 
part of the year. After that, they again had a meeting and 
elected more officers. This took place on February 5, 1926. 

The class of "twenty-nine" has been well represented in 
both forensic and athletic activities. The freshmen football 
team has been able to give the varsity squad a good game 
whenever they played. They have been equally successful in 
basket ball. In dramatics the freshmen have been well repre- 
sented. A number of them have had parts in the productions 
given the past year. The freshmen have also held a high 
scholastic standing. 

The class of "twenty-nine" as a whole, have been together 
on all questions, although there was a division of the class politi- 
cally, into what is known as the "Siegga" and "Kalakak" 
parties. May the class ever have this spirit of oneness for, 
"In unity there is strength."

THE purpose of the Students' Self-Governing Association as set forth in 
the preamble of the present constitution is to place the control and advance- 
ment of student interests and activities in the hands of the student body itself. 
With the firm belief that this arrangement will cause an increased self-control 
resulting in higher ideals and co-operation, and that officers of sufficient wisdom 
and maturity can be found so that appeal to college authorities shall be un- 

The policy of the present Executive Council as outlined at the beginning 
of the year was to be the execution of those duties which naturally come under 
the jurisdiction of the S. S. G. A. in the simplest and quickest manner possible 
with the minimum of unnecessary legislation to accomplish the end desired. 
The operation of the Executive Council in the preceding years had shown that 
many unnecessary and useless regulations had been passed with no effort or 
system provided for the enforcement of these rules. The apparent trouble in 
the functioning of the organization in the most satisfactory manner seemed to 
lie in the make-up of the council as a legislative body. 

With the idea of determining the cause of the lack of general interest in the 
S. S. G. A. and the reason for the inefficiency with which the Executive Council 
was compelled to operate, the formation of committees and the assigning of 
duties to the various members of the Council was carried on in accordance with 
the present constitution. 

Under this system, the Student's Directory was published, the Varsity 
Activity Budget Committee formed, and a method of election control was de- 
vised to provide for the change in political organization which took place during 
the present year. The other minor duties and functions were performed in the 
best and most expeditious manner that seemed suitable. 

At the present time, a committee organized in the Executive Council is 
preparing for presentation to the Student Body a constitution based on the 
present constitution but improved and revised in many respects. The com- 
mittee has taken as a guide, the strong and successful features of the constitu- 
tions of governing bodies of other schools and colleges that have practically the 
same problems. 

With a new constitution designed for the purpose of giving to the students 
the power of government that they are entitled to and providing for the exercise 
of that government in a judicious and business-like manner, the S. S. G. A. should 
be a highly successful and respected student organization in the years to come.

SEIGGA was organized as a political party just before the fall 
campaign of 1925. The name was derived by reversing the letters 
in the word "Aggies." 

No strong issues have arisen between the two campus parties. 
At present the Seigga differs from Kalakak chiefly in its more central- 
ized form of party organization and nomination. Seigga has an execu- 
tive council of five members selected in open convention. This year 
they are Gene Wiebrecht, Chairman; A. B. Rose, Rachel Herley, 
Charlotte Swanson and Orin Clency. 

When candidates are to be nominated the executive council of 
Seigga appoints a nominating committee which includes one or two 
students from each organization or group known to be favoring Seigga 
and also a number of other representative students. This committee 
meets and selects at least two names of persons believed to be fully 
eligible and capable for each office to be filled at the election. The 
committee also discusses and drafts a tentative platform for the party. 

The lists of suggested candidates are taken to the party's open 
convention. Anyone may add a candidate's name, and those who 
attend the convention vote and select the party candidates. A platform 
is discussed and adopted at this convention. 

In the fall elections, Seigga won the important Senior class offices. 
The party was very successful in the spring elections. Every office in the 
Sophomore and Senior classes, the presidency and two other offices in 
the Junior class, and one office in the Freshman class are filled by 

Hedbert, Rogler, Rugh, Nuss, Lantz, Nichols 

THE PRESENT system of school politics was brought into existence 
as an uprising against the old method of secret political organiza- 
tion in which each class had an organization which selected candidates 
and subsequently put them in office. The political power was in the 
hands of a few, the elections were undemocratic, and the system did 
not foster the school spirit which is so necessary in the establishment 
of a strong Alumni Association. 

Scarab, the Senior men's honorary fraternity, planned and put 
into existence a split in the Senior class which carried through the other 
classes, wrecking the numerous minor political clans, and increasing the 
political unit from the class to the school. 

Due to the financial embarrassment of the founders it became 
necessary to place the new plan under a handicap by requiring each voter 
to pay class dues of twenty-five cents at the time of the election. Never- 
theless the voting power was increased from 200 per cent in the Senior 
class to 1,000 per cent in the Sophomore class. This shows the over- 
whelming success of the new system. 

Next year the burden of collecting dues will be taken from the 
hands of the parties and will be replaced in the hands of the class 
treasurer. The parties will then be financed by the candidates and the 
voters will be free to vote without restrictions. 

As new issues will come up next fall some real lively campaigns 
are to be expected and the Kalakak party will be right in there fighting 
with more vim, vigor, and vitality than has heretofore been dreamed 
of by the school.

IN the spring of 1920, the Ag Fair was organized for the purpose 
of uniting all of the departments in the Agricultural Division 
in one central effort that would create a spirit of co-operative 
unity among the individual students. Each year its value as an 
educational project has increased. Every student in the division 
is given the opportunity to get experience that can be used in 
putting on County Fairs and other community organizations of 
which Agricultural graduates are often called on to take charge. 

Every Ag student is expected to, and does take an active part 
in the Ag Fair which is the one big enterprise for Agricultural

THE KANSAS team won the 1925 collegiate contest held at the American 
Royal Poultry Show at Kansas City on November 19. Five teams here com- 
peted. Ames was a close second. The Kansas team brought home this silver 
cup to make every trophy offered in Kansas City contests the possession of their 
Alma Mater. On December 11, this team placed eighth at the Coliseum contest 
in Chicago, with ten teams competing.

THE DAIRY CLUB of K. S. A. C. is open to all students that are interested 
in dairying. The programs at each meeting are given with a view of in- 
creasing the student's knowledge and interest in some field of dairying. The 
Dairy Club puts on a Student Dairy-Judging Contest each year; it takes a good- 
sized part in the Ag Fair, and puts on the Annual Dairy Cattle Show during 
Farm and Home Week.

THE Veterinary Medical Association was organized October 20, 1906. The 
same year saw the Association firmly established under a State Charter 
as a responsible Association, having fixed privileges and purposes. 

From the beginning the purpose of the Association has been the technical 
development, together with what literary and social training as might accompany 
it. Meetings are held once every two weeks during the regular school semesters 
and practically all students of Veterinary Medicine are members. To each 
Senior graduating in good standing is granted a "sheepskin" diploma signed by 
the officers of the Association. To belong to the Association is an aid to the men 
after leaving College in being recognized by various Veterinary Societies. Out 
of the ranks of the Veterinary Association have gone men who are honored in 
their walks of life. With interest increasing and opportunities widening, there 
is much to hope for in the future usefulness of the Association.

F. E. Wiebrecht, Editor-in-Chief 

npHE staff has hoped to make this, the 1926 Royal Purple, the eighteenth 
JL volume of the Kansas State Agricultural College annual, a memory book 
of the year's campus activities as well as a yearbook so distinctive that it will 
be a memory in itself. 

From the beginning our aim has been to make a book which will uphold 
the former standards and will rank equally with all other activities of the institu- 
tion. We have worked long and hard; we leave it to the student body to judge 
the result. 

The motif, the history of the State of Kansas, was chosen because of the 
close relationship of that history to the history of the school.

THE Brown Bull is the only humorous publication of the college, being issued four times a 
year. It is published jointly by Theta Sigma Phi and Sigma Delta Chi, journalistic frater- 
nities for women and men, respectively. 

This year has been the most successful for the Brown Bull, since it was established in 1920. 
The Brown Bull ranks with the best of college humor publications, and is quoted extensively in 
other college publications as well as in national humor magazines.

THE Kansas Agricultural Student is the official organ of the Agricultural 
Association, the general student organization of the Division of Agriculture. 
It is a thirty-two-page, highly illustrated, quarterly magazine, the first number of 
which was issued in December, 1921. The chief activities of the Division of Agri- 
culture are reported in the magazine which also gives semi-official reports of the 
outstanding projects under investigation in the Agricultural Experiment Station.

THE Reserve Officers' Training Corps at the Kansas State Agricultural 
College is composed of Infantry, Coast Artillery, and Veterinary units. 
These units are organized into one regiment of three Battalions. 

The practical work for the first year for all units consists mainly of close 
and extended order drills to teach and perfect discipline in the student and the 

For the second year this work is enlarged and instruction and practice in 
leadership and the handling of men as well as of the arm or arms peculiar to the 
unit to which the student belongs is given. 

Instruction in the Advance Course (third and fourth years) consists in 
applying the tactics of the unit to which the student belongs to concrete cases 
as well as special instruction in that unit. A large amount of work in command 
and leadership is also given, this instruction being particularly applicable to the 
handling of large numbers of men.

THE present group of Artillery officers have seen a wonderful improvement 
in the Cadet Corps in the past few years. They have developed the Coast 
Artillery Unit from a small, poorly equipped unit to one that ranks high in 
competition with other colleges and universities in the United States. This 
rating is due to the untiring efforts of the Coast Artillery officers.

THE infantry unit has made most rapid progress during the administration 
of the present regular army officers. The organization is more complete, 
the men are better disciplined and the unit as a whole is able to pass a military 
inspection with a higher grade than it has received heretofore. Progress has 
been made not alone in the close-order drills, but the cadets themselves have a 
more thorough knowledge of the principles to be used in time of peace or war. 
These officers have done more than their share to advance K. S. A. C. to the grade 
of distinguished College, the highest honor that is conferred to a R. O. T. C.

ALTHO the Veterinary Unit at K. S. A. C. is very small, compared with 
the Artillery and Infantry Units, it is fast becoming a very popular course 
in the Veterinary Division and will continue to develop due to the personal in- 
terest that is shown in the work by Capt. G. W. FitzGerald.

THE non-commissioned officers deserve a great deal of praise for the improve- 
ment that is taking place in the Cadet Corps at this college. Altho the num- 
ber of men employed has been decreased, the work of the non-commissioned 
officers has been carried on as efficiently as in previous years. Their willingness 
to help has gained for them many friends in the Cadet Corps.

THE RESULT of gallery rifle teams for the season 1925-1926 were very 
gratifying and a distinct surprise to the department, since the scores were 
much higher than had been expected from such a new and unseasoned 
team. After overcoming many difficulties, they won, in a very decisive 
manner, 16 out of 21 matches with the largest colleges and universities in the 
United States. Their scores and victories were achievements which have 
never been duplicated by a Kansas State Rifle Team and rated this team as 
one of the few high-scoring teams of the country. 

The team was very ably captained by Mr. I. K. McWilliams, a Senior in 
Mechanical Engineering. Captain McWilliams deserved much credit for 
the way in which the team functioned. 

The three high men of the season were as follows: 

W. S. Mayden ...... Gold Medal 

H. A. Senior Silver Medal 

R. L. Roberts Bronze Medal 

Mayden was gold medal man in 1922-1923, and the best rifle shot that 
ever represented Kansas State. He could easily develop into the best shot 
in this country. 

Capt. Waltz 

Senior was a new man and a hard worker. He should push Mayden for honors next year. 

Roberts was a very fine shot and hard worker. He could always be relied upon. 

The high ten men of the team who received sweaters for their exceptional work were as follows: 

W. S. Mayden

THE Cadet Corps of Coast Artillery has made very rapid strides in the past 
year, not only in numbers but also in some very noticeable achievements at 
school and at Fort Monroe. In firing the twelve-inch disappearing rifle and the 
twelve-inch railway mortar, the boys from Kansas State made a larger percent- 
age of hits than units of any other school. They also qualified twice as many 
men in rifle and pistol marksmanship.

THE R. O. T. C. Infantry met all competition at Ft. Snelling with the utmost 
credit to itself and honor to the school. Especial distinction was made in 
the rifle and pistol competition. The company had practical experience in the 
use of the 3-in. trench mortar, the machine gun and automatic rifle, and the 37- 
mm. fieldpieces, as well as the regular infantry drill. The general appearance 
and bearing of the cadet infantry companies show that the officers are competent 
and that the line of command is well defined.

Michael F. Ahearn 

MIKE" has been associated with Aggie athletics since 1905 as Coach of all sports and as 
Director. During that time he has watched the Wildcat teams develop from an un- 
recognized position of strength in the realm of sport until today all teams of the College rank 
with the best in the United States. 

As Athletic Director for the past six years, he has clearly demonstrated his ability as a leader, 
as a diplomat and as an administrator. To him much credit is due for his wisdom in the selection 
of the Coaches. His influence has been a prime factor in the unusual progress of the Wildcats in 
athletic achievement. 

Mr. Ahearn, Dean of Missouri Valley Directors, is nationally recognized as an authority 
in sport and he has served on the National Football Rules Committee for the past four years. 


Charles W. Bachman 
Head Coach 


W. BACHMAN has been the Coach of Aggie football and track teams for the past six 
years. Seldom does a coach possess that combination of personality and ability that wins 
for him the never-failing co-operation of the individual athlete and the loyal support of 
those interested in the success of the teams. 

K. S. A. C. and her followers will always be grateful to him for his work, which has given 
them the privilege of beholding that rare genius of leadership which turns idealism and theory 
into performance.

Coach C. W. Corsaut 

N 1924 C. W. Corsaut took over an Aggie basket ball team which had been the conference 
doormat for two seasons. That year the Purple finished fourth, in 1925 third, and this year 
the Aggies tied for second honors in the Valley. 

Technical ability, knowledge of the game's rules, and strategy has been drilled into Wildcat 
basket ball men. Back of Corsaut's success, however, is a further quality — that of instilling into 
his men high ideals of sportsmanship and of tenacity. 

Corsaut-tutored teams are never permitted to retaliate for rough play. They play according 
to the spirit as well as the letter of the code — but they play a hard, fierce, dogged game and op- 
ponents have learned never to count a game won from the Aggies until the final second has been 

As coach of baseball Corsaut has developed teams stamped with the same proficiency and 
fight which has been shown by his basket ball teams. Last season's crew finished third in the 
chase for the conference pennant. Given material with that little bit extra in brain and brawn 
which distinguishes the great from the mediocre in athletics, Corsaut will turn out champions.

R. FRANK ROOT, a graduate of Kansas State 
Agricultural College and one of the best all-

Bachman's assistant in coaching football, he 
has personal charge of the Freshmen basket ball and 
baseball teams, teaches several classes in Physical 
Education, and has a keen interest in Intramural 
Athletics. He is always ready to step in, fill, or take 
care of any emergency. His willingness and readiness 
to co-operate makes him an invaluable member of the 
Athletic Department. 


Prof. Summers did most of the scouting for the 
Aggies this year and from the reports he turned in on 
the football systems of the opponents, proved himself 
an encyclopedia for knowledge. Every play was 
technically reproduced and described in his type- 
written reports. Prof. Summers has won the sincere

The Freshman football squad was under the 
tutelage of Prof. Brainard and Dr. Holtz. Under

THE KANSAS STATE WILDCATS opened their 1925 season by trouncing the strong Kansas 
State Teachers of Emporia 26 to 7. 

Don Meek, famous for his long run against K. U. last fall, demonstrated his real foot- 
ball ability by running around the Emporia tacklers for three touchdowns. 

Holsinger was also an outstanding performer because of his accurate passing and off tackle 

The play of Lane in the backfield and Crockett and Campbell in the line featured the play 
of the Teachers. Although rather small for a fullback, Lane was very good in backing up his line. 
Campbell broke up many an off tackle run and Crockett was always there when the Aggies came 
his way. 

The only Teachers' score came in the first quarter when Campbell rudely knocked down the 
ball which Cochrane was attempting to kick and accompanied it across the goal line. He later 
kicked goal, making the opponents' score 7. 

The reserve strength of the Aggies had its effect on the Kansas Conference representatives 
in the last half of the game. The first quarter was rather even, but once the Aggies "got started," 
there was no question as to the superiority of the Aggies. 

A summary of the game shows that the Aggies earned 22 first downs to two for the Teachers 
and gained 513 yards from scrimmage to 46 yards for the Emporians.

HPHE AGGIE WILDCATS won their first Missouri Valley game of the season from Oklahoma 
University in a fast and spectacular gridiron battle. 

The intense heat in the first half was a prime factor in the success of the opponents from 
the Sunny South who outplayed the Aggies in the first two quarters. In the second half a cool 
breeze from the north gave the Aggies the pep and drive which carried them to a 16 to victory. 

The first Aggie counter came in the third quarter when Cochrane stood on the Sooner 35-yard 
line and drop kicked the ball squarely between the goal posts. The first touchdown came in the 
same period when Haskard intercepted a Sooner pass and side-stepping and dodging the entire 
tribe of warriors from Soonerland ran 80 yards thru a broken field for a touchdown. Cochrane 
kicked goal. This was one of the most sensational and spectacular broken-field runs seen on 
Memorial Stadium field since Ray Hahn made his thrilling 65-yard run against K. U. in 1922. 

Feathers pushed the ball over for the last score in the fourth period when it was fourth down 
and the ball a yard from the line. 

The two teams, well educated and skilled in the technique of the forward passing game, 
gave the crowd some hair-raising thrills when forward passes were completed to players who were 
being closely guarded. 

Both teams were evenly matched, and the battle was closely fought; however, a summary of 
the game gives Oklahoma a small advantage in yardage and first downs.

THE MENTAL attitude of the contesting teams often determines the outcome of an athletic 
event. This fact was emphatically illustrated many times during the past football season ; 
particularly so when the Missouri Tigers defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers 9 to 6 one week 
after the Huskers had triumphed over Illinois and "Red" Grange. And again Ames defeated 
K. U. 21 to 0. Another instance of this condition was demonstrated when the Drake Bulldogs 
upset the dope by defeating the Kansas Aggies 19 to in a Missouri Valley Conference game. 

Last year the Aggies clearly outplayed Drake. This year, a week before the Aggie game, the 
Bulldogs had difficulty in winning from Washington University by a small score and the Drake 
team of 1924 was rated stronger than the team of 1925. These results gave the Aggie team a 
spirit of overconfidence when they entered the game. They never recovered from this mental 

However the game was a thriller from the spectator's point of view and both teams battled 
on even terms in every department except the scoring. The Aggies "threw away" three "sure" 
touchdowns by fumbling forward passes with a clear field ahead, and gave Drake a touchdown 
on a fumble pass from center when attempting to punt from near the goal line. A fumbled punt 
also figured in one of their scores. 

This experience of the result of overconfidence was instrumental in the success of the Aggies 
for the remainder of the season, in that it taught them the lesson that worthy opponents can be 
beaten only on the field of play and not in the dressing room. 

Kansas 7= =&satea 14 

TRAMPLING OVER the remnants of a Jayhawk "super-six" line, Kansas State slipped and 
slid to a 14 to 7 victory over Kansas University on the Jayhawk home field. Last year the 
"Jinx" of 18 years was broken and the Wildcats, after having tasted the blood of the Jayhawk 
bird entered the fray determined to win and behaved themselves most nobly. 

The first Aggie touchdown came with startling suddenness. An attempt to catch one of 
Cochrane's high hurtling kicks on the Kansas three-yard line failed and was recovered by McGee. 
A second later Holsinger went over for the touchdown and McGee added the extra points while 
dazed Kansas crowds watched in amazement and Kansas State was wildly exultant. 

As the first half drew to a close the Jayhawks opened up a brilliant forward passing assault 
and hustled the ball to the Aggie's seven-yard line where the referee's whistle rescued the Wildcats 
from a perilous situation — the only real threat the Jayhawkers made during the game. 

The generalship of Cochrane was responsible for the second Aggie touchdown. After two 
ineffective line smashes, Holsinger whipped out a long pass to Price who caught it yards from any 
Kansas player and raced on over the goal while the once-winged Jayhawk bird plodded soddenly 
behind. McGee again kicked goal. 

As the spectators were awaiting the final gun; another surprise affair; the Kansas touchdown 
was made. A jayhawk intercepted an Aggie pass and headed for the goal. In a thrilling race, 
Pearson demonstrated his speed and pulled him down from behind on the Aggie four-yard line. 
The Wildcats fought stubbornly but yielded a touchdown on the fourth drive of the University 
men. Wall kicked goal. A minute later and another victory for Kansas State went down in the 
annals of history.

AGGIE "dads" for the second consecutive year had to watch the Aggies perform on a wet 
and soggy field. The Missouri Tigers, champions of the Missouri Valley, found the Wild- 
cats to he a little more than their equal in scrimmage and the only score of the game came in 
the third quarter as the result of a blocked punt which put the Tigers in a position to score. 
Captain Whiteman booted the ball over the crossbar for the Tigers three points. 

The outstanding feature of the game, and a feat seldom seen in football, came in the third 
quarter. Cochrane's kick was blocked by Bacchus on the Aggie 40-yard line and Cochrane 
recovered the ball on his own one-yard line. But the ball was Missouri's; 4 downs and one yard 
to go to a touchdown. Four times the Valley Champions hurled themselves at the defense of 
the Aggies; each member of the Tiger backfield tried to plunge through the stone wall defense 
ot the Aggies line but each smash was stubbornly met by the Wildcats and after the Tigers had 
used up their four attempts they were still one yard from the coveted goal. 

It would be difficult to pick out the individual stars of the game; however, Bacchus and Cap- 
tain Whiteman of Missouri did the most damage to the Aggies. The Aggie line, working as a 
unit, halted the determined drives of the Missourians. 

A summary of the game shows that each team made four first downs. The Aggies made 
142 yards from scrimmage to 96 for Missouri; completed 4 passes to one for the Tigers and aver- 
aged two yards more on their punts than did Missouri.

IN THEIR first big inter-sectional football game, the Kansas Aggies won from Marquette Uni- 
versity of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 2 to 0. The game was played in a 40-mile-an-hour blizzard 
and on a water-soaked field. In spite of the almost impossible conditions, the Aggies upheld 
the best traditions of Missouri Valley Football. 

The 8,900 fans who braved the storm were treated to a wonderful exhibition of punting by 
"Chili" Cochrane of the Aggies. "Chili" kept the Irish away from the Aggie goal by his kicking 
and he won fame from the sport critics for the errorless manner in which he handled the wet and 
slippery ball. 

In the second quarter, Ballard, Aggie left tackle, smashed through the Marquette line and 
downed Detnoling, the Irish quarterback, who was trying to kick from behind his own goal line, 
thus counting a safety, which later proved to be the margin of Aggie victory. Twice in the third 
quarter the Aggies threatened to cross the Irish goal line, but each attempt failed by inches. 

Each team tried four field goals, Marquette made all four of their tries in the last minute of 
the game, which gave a lasting thrill to the anxious and hopeful Marquette rooters. The game as a 
whole was clean and hard fought. The hard and deadly tackling and blocking of both teams being 
especially in evidence. 

The splendid reception accorded the Aggies on their arrival in Milwaukee by the students, 
faculty and alumni of Marquette University and the interest in the game shown by the people of 
Milwaukee, was instrumental in the Athletic Department scheduling another game with Mar- 
quette for next season.

THE 1925 Homecoming crowd included such dignitaries as United States Secretary of Agri- 
culture, Wm. M. Jardine; Governor Paulen of Kansas; Governor McMullen of Nebraska; 
and Senator Capper of Kansas. 

In a cold, damp, chilly, and disagreeable atmosphere, such as has attended every game played 
on Memorial Stadium field this year, the Kansas Aggies held the powerful Nebraska Cornhuskers 
to a scoreless tie in one of the best gridiron classics ever staged on the home field. 

Cochrane of the Wildcats gave a wonderful exhibition of his punting ability, one of his kicks 
sailing for seventy-five yards. 

In the third quarter Nebraska launched a steam roller attack, led by "Choppy" Rhoades, 
which threatened to score but the Aggie line arose to the occasion and halted the Cornhuskers 
on the 35-yard line. This drive was the only threat of Nebraska during the game to score. 

The Backmanites lost a golden opportunity when a pass was completed to Haskard near the 
goal line, but the play was called back because of an off-side penalty. 

The statistics show that neither team had a decided advantage as the number of first downs, 
yardage from scrimmage, and passes completed was even. An outstanding feature of the game 
was the clean, yet determined, spirit of the players. This spirit exemplifies the splendid athletic 
and collegiate relationship which exists between the two great institutions. 

This was the first time that the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Kansas Aggies have met on 
the gridiron that the Huskers have not triumphed over the Wildcats. Aggie rooters were jubilant 
over the result and considered the outcome as virtually a victory for the wearers of the purple.

FOR THEIR DEFEAT of last year the Aggies feasted on sweet revenge by defeating Iowa 
State College at Ames by a score of 12 to 7. This victory was all the more gratifying because 
Ames had defeated Drake the week before. Also because the Wildcats finished the season in 
a tie with Ames for third place in the Missouri Valley standing. 

The game was played during a rain which made efficient handling of the ball impossible. 
However, the Wildcats completed all of their attempted passes. The Aggies emphatically illus- 
trated their "punch" when they scored their first touchdown in less than three minutes, after the 
opening of the second half. Taking the ball from Ames 15-yard line they marched down the field 
to the goal in four plays; an average of over twenty-one yards per play. A summary shows that 
Kansas State outgained Iowa State 4 yards to one. 

The winning Aggie touchdown came in the last minutes of the game when Ames blocked 
McGee's attempted place kick and Haskard recovered and side-stepping three Ames tacklers 
reached the goal, scoring the winning points of the game. 

The offensive playing of Feathers and the splendid generalship, passing, and open field running 
of Carl Enns were easily outstanding features of the game. 

This game was the last one in which Captain McGee, O. H. Wilson, W. Ballard, and Randels 
will be able to compete for Kansas State. Their Alma Mater will always be grateful to them for 
the brand of determined fairplay and good sportsmanship shown by them in their years of service.

Captain Harry McGee 

Two-letter Man 

"Maggie" was one of the best football players in 
the Missouri Valley, and justly earned the position of 
All-Valley Guard. In addition to his ability as a 
combination guard and center, he made a good leader 
for the team. His pleasing personality, aggressiveness 
and knowledge of the game made him popular with the 
players and officials. He was the first Aggie player to 
receive recognition from outside of the Valley and 
was named on several All-Western selections. 


Captain-elect S. J. Tombaugh Kansas City 

Two-letter Man 

When a successor was needed to fill the shoes of 
McGee, the letter men quickly selected "Si" Tombaugh. 
Tommy is the ideal type of a guard, has exceptional 
speed, a splendid physique, and the determination to 
win. He is considered one of the outstanding players 
of the Valley and he will make the Wildcats a good 

Page 19 


H. M. Randels 


Four-letter Man 

"Proc" came from a family of football players and was the second 
of the family to carry the colors of the school. After three years away 
from school, Randels returned to complete his education and to fill the 
position at left end. He is one of few men who have won four letters 
in one sport at Kansas State. His experience and knowledge of the 
game made him especially valuable as a player and as a volunteer 
coach to the other inexperienced ends. "Proc" was a sincere football 
player, quick on his feet and his defensive play was almost faultless. 
He was placed on the second All-Valley Team. 

W. Ballard 


Three-letter Man 

"Bill" came to the college unheard of and unknown. His playing 
during the three years of his Varsity competition has enshrined him in 
the hearts of Aggie supporters. Not flashy, but always steady and 
dependable. It was no uncommon sight to see the plays directed from 
his side of the line piled up behind the line before they were well under 
way or to see him racing down the field under punts far ahead of the 
ends. He was the ideal type of tackle in physique and disposition and 
his place will be hard to fill. 

Otis H. Wilson 


Three-letter Man 

"Curly" is the last of the famous passing combination of three years 
ago, being a teammate of Stark, Swartz, and Axline. He was a heady 
football player, a splendid interferer and a ball lugger of no mean 
ability. His willingness to co-operate, coupled with his knowledge of 
the Notre Dame System of football made him popular with the men 
and a valuable member of the team. 

Owen Cochrane 

Tivo-letter Man 

"Chili" received recognition from all of the sport critics as one of 
the outstanding quarterbacks of the middle west. He was a clever 
strategist and field general, a good passer and the best punter and drop 
kicker in the valley. "Chili" has one more year to play and much is 
expected of him. He was chosen quarterback on the 1925 All-Missouri 
Valley Football team. 


m P 

E. E. Feathers 


Two-letter Man 

Feathers showed them how to hit the line in the Ames game. He 
is the hardest line smasher on the team, a good interferer, and ranks 
with the best of the defensive men in the middle west. "Tiny" is a 
willing and conscientious worker and should land an All-Missouri Valley 
berth next season. 

Harold Dayhoff 

Two-letter Man 


Harold was the hard-luck man of the 1925 squad. Injuries kept 
him out of the game for half of the season. He was one of the fastest 
men on the squad and his line smashes were known for their drive. He 
also was a good secondary defense man. 

Page 194 

Jerry Krvsl 

Two-letter Man 

"Jerry" played his second year at tackle. His aggressive style of 
play made his side of the line unpopular with his opponents. He likes 
to "rough it" and the harder they come at him the better he likes it. 


Don Meek 

I dan a 

Two-letter Man 

Although the smallest man in Valley football, he is also one of the 
most dangerous men in the open field. "Don" is very fast and shifty 
and has peculiar affinity for fumbled balls. Ask K. U. 

I m mm. 

Myron Reed 


Two-letter Mayi 

Reed is a power in the line and he particularly demonstrated his 
ability as a defensive player. Myron has speed and the size which makes 
him a smashing power in the forward wall of the Aggie defense. He 
has one more year to play. 

Raymond Smith 


Two-letter Alan 

Raymond is a good forward passer and a driving halfback. His 
long galloping runs off the tackle and around the ends were spectacular. 
He scored many a touchdown on his never-stop, never-down attitude 
in carrying the ball. He has one more year on the team. 

Zurlinden Pearson 

One-letter Man 


When his knee injury of long standing responded to persistent 
treatment, he donned his football togs and reported to Coach Bachman. 
Being tall and aggressive and possessed with the speed of a locomotive, 
"Zur" won the respect of the Valley Teams and many critics named 
him on their All-Valley teams. Crowley of Notre Dame, now coach of 
Columbia University, placed Pearson on his All-American Team. 

Donald Springer 

One-letter Man 


"Don" was another of Manhattan's products. He was a consistent 
ground-gainer by his long end runs and by his accurate passing. He 
has two more years to play and he should make a name for himself 
in the Aggie Hall of Football Fame. 

Page 196 


Jim Douglas 


One-letter Man 

Jim demonstrated his line smashing ability as a Freshman. With 
Feathers and Dayhoff out of the game because of injuries, he jumped 
into the breach and made good with a vengeance. On defense he de- 
lighted in smacking the man carrying the ball with all of his powerful 
drive and tackling ability. 

A. R. Edwards 

Ft. Scott 

One-letter Man 

Full of fight and determination, he made good use of his one 
hundred and eighty pounds of weight. He had speed and the ability 
to snag passes which made him a strong candidate for the end position. 
"Monk" shared the playing time with Randels and the two years he 
still has to play he should be on one of the wing positions as a regular. 

Theodore Fleck 

One-letter Man 
Although changed from a high school 

Want ego 

ruuiougii cuangeu iiuin a mgn scnuui tackle to an end, Ted 
developed into a football player of great possibilities. His one hundred 
and eight} 7 pounds of bone and muscle propelled with ten second speed, 
combined with his aggressiveness and determination, made him an 
ideal wing man. 

Page 197 

Joe Holsinger Kansas City 

One-letter Man 

Joe reminds Aggie followers of Arthur Stark. He is shifty 
and an exceptionally hard-driving halfback. He possesses a 
splendid passing arm and he delivers the ball with deadly accu- 
racy and with the speed of a bullet. 

Carl Enns 


One-letter Man 

Carl is the most versatile man in the history of Aggie football. 
He is a heady field general, a shifty open-field runner, a good 
punter, a place kicker and a deadly passer. Although small, he 
is mighty, and is destined to make Missouri Valley football 

James Price 


One-letter Man 

Manhattan gave to the college one of its most valuable 
players in Jim Price. Jim played his Freshman year at Swart- 
more. This playing experience was helpful in out-guessing his 
opponents. His ability to snatch passes out of the air was 
demonstrated in the game with Kansas University when Jim 
caught a long pass on the dead run, and eluding the secondary 
defense, scored the second touchdown. 

J J 

C. W. Brion 


One-letter Man 

Brion was shifted from halfback to a guard 
position. "Jud" made good use of his football 
experience and developed into a very good 
guard. He plays a heady and a hard driving- 
game. He is especially good on getting the 
secondary defense of the opponents. 

R. H. Haskard Hutchinson 

One-letter Man 

The "Red Grange" of the Aggie backfield 
and one of the most elusive backs in the 
country. Dick has only two speeds, low and 
high, and he goes from low to high in one step. 
He is an excellent broken field runner, a good 
passer, and a dangerous man to be in the open 
field when a pass is thrown his direction.

WHEN the call was issued for Freshman football candidates, the Athletic 
Department soon ran out of all the large sizes of football equipment. 
Without exception, the 1925 Freshman squad contained the largest number of 
big men of any Freshman squad in the history of the college. The first time 
Coaches Brainard and Holtz looked over their proteges they were highly en- 
thusiastic over the possibilities of molding a machine that would defeat the 
Varsity. Almost every squad has a few large men, but this is the first to 
produce large men of a type of real value; they had speed, co-ordination, and 
football sense. They wanted to play; they took delight in a scrimmage with 
the upperclassmen. It was no hard task to muster a line averaging 190 pounds 
and one that possessed the ability to smear the drives of the varsity regulars. 
Many an evening was devoted to "shadow practice" in order to avoid injuries 
to the Bachmanites. The eagerness to play was responsible for the large number 
of Yearlings still on the job at the wind-up of the season. 

The annual game with the Varsity was a thriller. The Freshmen scored 
first when Halderman broke through the Purple line on an off- tackle play and 
reversing the field, planted the pigskin over the goal line. The regulars then 
realized the task before them. After a mixture of passes and drives, the Bach- 
manites tied the score, 7-7. The last quarter found each team determined that 
the other would not score but finally in the last minutes of the battle the Varsity 
backs punctured the Yearling defense for the points that won the game 13-7. 

Bachman takes great joy in dreaming of the future of this excellent football 
material which will be added to the Varsity next fall.

1926 feket Pall 

THE BASKET BALL season of 1926 found 
the Aggie Wildcats engaged in their initial 
battle with a member of the Big Ten conference, 
when Coach Corsaut took a squad of eight men 
on a pre-season trip to play Northwestern and 
Illinois of the Big Ten, and Notre Dame, a 
strong non-conference team. 

Although a hard trip and against strong 
teams, the Aggies represented Kansas State 
and the Missouri Valley in a creditable manner. 
They won from Northwestern in an extra 
five-minute period, lost to Illinois by a one- 
point margin in the last half minute of play 
and ended the trip by losing to Notre Dame in a hard fought battle. 

The Wildcats next played the strong Schooley team, last year city champions 
of Kansas City, Mo., and turned in a second victory of the season. Coach 
Corsaut used the entire squad in this game. 

The first valley game was on January 13, with Kansas University on our 
home court; our rivals from Lawrence winning a close game, marked by the 
inconsistency of both teams at both teamwork and goal shooting. 

On the following Friday the Aggies brought their percentage to five hundred by 
virtue of a win over Grinnell on the home court. The students and townspeople 
showed their faith in the team and Coach Corsaut by turning out en masse, and left 

the gymnasium well pleased and f u lly paid for their 
attendance. The entire team showed a reversal 
of form and drive from that displayed in the game 
with Kansas University a few nights before. 

Again the team went outside the conference, 
this time to play the K. C. A. C. team of Kansas 
City, a team of former valley stars. The Aggies 
were defeated, but the defeat was by no means 
an indication of poor play on their part, for the 
K. C. A. C. team was working together excep- 
tionally well and making a high percentage of 
J heir attempts for baskets.

1926 m&tt Pall 

With the season getting well under way and every team 
fighting for a place in the first division, the Wildcats left 
for their Missouri trip. On February 5, the Missouri Tigers 
won from the Aggies by a three-point margin in the last 
minute of play after trailing for the entire game. This de- 
feat later proved to be the one which kept Kansas State 
from dividing first honors with our sister institution down 
the Kaw. 

The following night, on the new gymnasium floor of 
Washington U. at St. Louis, a fighting, determined squad of 
Wildcats fought their way to victory over the Red and 
Green, again boosting their average to five hundred per rent. 
Never again during the season did they fall below this average. 

Returning home from the Missouri trip, they found all their friends per- 
plexed at their showing in the "show me" state. After a couple of days' rest, 
they met the strong Nebraska team before a well packed gymnasium. This 
game, another for our win column, helped avenge the double defeat handed us 
last season by the Huskers. With a safe margin near the end of the game, 
Coach Corsaut rested his regulars and the reserves carried on in a manner that 
gained for them the approval of the entire audience. 

Four days later the Aggies met and defeated the Iowa Aggies, leading 
throughout the entire game. Again Coach Corsaut used his reserves to finish 
the game. 

Next on our schedule was a trip to Nebraska with Ne- 
braska U. and Creighton as our opponents. At Lincoln with 
a late start as a handicap, the Wildcats, true to their name, 
fought their way to victory in the last half — thus giving the 
Aggies a firm hold on third place and letting Nebraska down to 
fourth place in the Valley standing. 

The following night at Omaha in a non-conference game 
with Creighton, the Aggies were defeated in a thrilling game 
between two small, fast teams, both playing the ball at all 
times. As the well-known official Quigley said, "It was a 
basket ball game played as basket ball should be played."

1926 Packet Pall 

Washington and Missouri were guests of the Aggies 
on consecutive nights to wind up the busiest week of the 
season. Both visiting teams were defeated, in what were 
conceded to be two of the fastest games seen on the 
home court in many seasons. The Aggie crew showed 
the effect of their four games in five days, but Coach 
Corsaut's conditioning carried them through, fighting 
to the finish. 

The Aggies' percentage now was 778, the result of 
seven victories in nine games. Their position was a 
possible tie for first place provided they could defeat 
Kansas University at Lawrence and the two Iowa 

teams the following week. With the idea of battling Kansas University for 
highest honors, the Aggies invaded Jayhawk-land but were turned back in a 
thrilling 34-29 contest. 

Both teams realizing the importance of the game, were on edge when the game 
began, but as the game progressed they settled down and gave the fans an exhibi- 
tion of basket ball which they expected of the two teams. Kansas University 
had the advantage in height and used this advantage to win the game by follow- 
up shots. 

As a result of the defeat at Kansas University the best the Wildcats could 
do was to tie with Oklahoma for second honors by defeating the two Iowa teams 
left on their schedule. These two teams were at the bottom of the valley standing, 
but their standing was by no means an indication of their strength , 
but rather showed that all teams were of nearly the same strength. 

Both games were extra-period affairs, the Ames game being 
won by a one-point margin and the Grinnell game by three 
points. In the Ames game with the opponents holding a twelve- 
point lead and ten minutes to play, the Aggies showed a fight 
and never-say-die spirit characteristic of Corsaut coached teams, 
that brought the score to a tie, and then won in the playoff. 
In the Grinnell game the following night the Aggies again won 
after a late start, in a rough, hard-fought game, the last of the 
season for both teams. 

The 1926 season marked the Aggies taking another step 
toward the top of the Missouri Valley standings. They finished 
their schedule in a tie with Oklahoma University for second 
place in the conference.

Captain Fritz Koch 


Three-letter Man 


"Fritz" was an ideal captain and leader. His de- 
termined play was a wholesome inspiration to the other 
members of the team. His specialty was intercepting long 
passes and diagnosing the play of the opponents. Being 
one of the steadiest guards in the conference, he was given 
honorable mention in the All-Valley selections. 

Captain-elect A. R. Edwards Fort Scott 

One-letter Man 

"Monk" was the best offensive guard in the Valley, 
but his greatest value to the team was his ability to keep 
the men driving. He has two more years to play and his 
popularity and ability have already won for him a cap- 
taincy in his Sophomore year. The confidence of his team- 
mates was won by his aggressiveness and by the fact that 
he was one of the hardest workers on the squad. There 
is no doubt that he will make an excellent and influential 
leader for the Wildcats in 1927.

Eric Tebow 

Three-letter Man 

Although one of the smallest centers in the Conference, "Te" has 
often tipped the ball to his teammates. Tebow was an unusually hard 
man to stop under the basket, fast on the offense and one of the highest 
individual point men in the Valley. His value as a player was recog- 
nized in his choice as center and Captain of the second All-Valley team.

Clifton Byers 


Two-letter Man 

"Lefty" averaged the highest number of points per game of any 
Valley player. Unexcelled in his ability to sink a basket from mid- 
court, he was responsible for drawing out the defense of the opponents, 
permitting his teammates to make short shots. His scoring power and 
floor play were instrumental in his unanimous choice as All-Missouri 
Valley forward for 1926. 

Harold Weddle 


Two-letter Man

Weddle's value to the team lay in his versatility. Whenever 
called upon "Doc" could do any assignment equally well. Without 
exception he was the best utility man in the Valley and an excellent 
basket ball player.

E. H. Mertel Kansas City

ALTHOUGH Coach Corsaut lost some valuable men the past season, he 
can look with pride at the yearling squad which possesses men capable 
of filling the vacant offensive and center positions of the Varsity five; the Fresh-

years with the other Valley teams.

Captain Kenneth G. Knouse 

Three-letter Man 

For the last three years "Kenney" has won 
points for the Wildcats in the quarter mile. He 
started his career by defeating the Missouri Tigers 
and since then he has always been hard to catch in 
his favorite event. His sincerity in working for the 
team and his pleasing personality made him a 
popular captain and leader. 

Captain-elect R. E. Kimport 

Two-letter Man 


"Kimpy" is the premier miler of the Missouri 
Valley and for three years has been the mainstay 
of our cross-country team and relay teams. He is 
valuable also as a coach for his teammates in the 
distance runs. He holds the Missouri Valley indoor 
record for the mile. 

A. I. Balzer 


Three -letter Man 

Balzer was the Missouri Valley two-mile champion and also 
one of the best collegiate distance runners in the country. "Puff" 
holds the Valley Indoor record for the two-mile and would 
probably have set a new outdoor record except for the fact that 
a pulled tendon kept him off the track after the middle of the 

John Gartner 

Three-letter Man 


John was a consistent point winner in all meets and he 
"improved with age." Each year of his varsity competition he 
increased the college discus record until he left it at 134 feet and 
10?'2 inches at the close of his college career. 

E. Von Reisen Marsyville 

Two-letter Man 

"Von" won his letter for two years as a member of the 
relay and cross-country team. He was a good man in any dis- 
tance from the 440-vard dash to the 5-mile run. 

H. A. Brockway 

Two-letter Man 

Ola the 

"Brock" developed from an unknown into a first-class 
quarter-miler in his sophomore year. He is a hard worker for 
the team and has one more year of competition. 

E. E. Coleman 

Two-letter Man 


Coleman was a member of the two-mile and medley relay 
teams. The half-mile run was his favorite run, although he made 
good time in the quarter. 

P. R. Carter Bradford 

Two-letter Man 

By hard and consistent work "Phil" worked his way 
from a ten-foot vaulter until he was clearing the bar at 
12 feet and 6 inches as the season closed. He holds the 
College record and he promises to clear 13 feet before he 
closes his collegiate career. 

M. L. Sallee 

Long Island 

One-letter Man 

"Sally" is short but he sure burns up the track in the long 
runs. He moves his short legs with such a speed that he makes 
up all that is lost on short strides. He was a member of the 
Missouri Valley Cross-Country Team and also of the winning 
relay teams. 

F. Brunkau 


Two-letter Man 

"Brunk" was considered the "iron man" of the Aggie squad. 
His specialty was the javelin and the shot. He always gathered 
points in each of these two events. 

P. A. Axtell 

A rgonia 

One-letter Man 

Although only a Sophomore, Paul has performed as a 
veteran in his specialties — the middle-distance runs. He was a 
member of the Missouri Valley Cross-Country Team and the 
two-mile relay team that took first at the Illinois relays. 

L. L. Davis Effingham 

One-letter Man 

Loren is one of the most versatile men on the track 
team. Davis could be counted on to score points in the 
low hurdles, the 220 and the 440-vard dash. 

H. Russell 


One-letter Man 

Russell re-entered college at the beginning of the 
second semester, just in time to fill the place of a much 
needed quarter-miler for the relay team. He was not 
flashy, but very dependable. 


In one of the most thrilling races seen at the University of Illinois Relays, 
the Wildcats' two-mile relay team outsprinted Northwestern at the tape and 
finished far ahead of the others. At the Texas University Relays the Aggies ran 
in record time, marking-up a new Texas Relay record as well as a new Aggie 
record for the two-mile relay. The beautiful trophies awarded them are two 
more additions to the many emblems of victory that Coach Bachman's distance 
men have won. 


1925 Crack 

THE 1925 Kansas State Track Squad, as usual, contained a few outstanding stars but the 
team lacked a winning balance. 

In the K. C. A. C. Indoor Invitation Meet, the two-mile relay team won second and 
the mile relay team third. In the Missouri Valley Indoor Meet Captain Kimport established a 
new Missouri Valley record for the mile run, stepping the distance in the fast time of 4 minutes 
and 25.8 seconds. Balzer also burned up the track and hung up a Missouri Valley record of 9 
minutes and 37.6 seconds for the two-mile run. 

The four-mile relay team at Illinois ran second to Michigan, losing at the tape by a scant 
two yards. In the Kansas Relays they won fourth and in the Drake Relays, third. 

Kansas University was met in a dual meet and the Jayhawkers won. In the distance runs, 
Kimport captured the mile and half-mile and Balzer the two-mile. Brunkau gave the shot a 
good heave and took first, he also tossed the javelin for second honors. Gartner sailed the discus 
farther than any of his rivals. Carter tied for first in the pole vault and Russell tied for first in 
the 440-yard dash. 

The Missouri Tigers were on their toes and defeated the Wildcats by a large score. Captain 
Kimport won the half-mile and Balzer the two-mile, then they tied for first in the mile. Carter 
tied for first in the pole vault with Lancaster of the Tigers. Brunkau succeeded in winning the 
javelin and was second in the shot. Gartner, Russell and Knouse also won seconds. 

The Triangle Meet between Nebraska, Kansas University, and The Kansas Aggies was held 
at Lincoln. The weather was too cold for a track meet and the Aggie distance men did not per- 
form up to their usual standard. Captain Kimport lost his first race of the season in the mile 
and Balzer pulled a tendon in the two-mile. Gartner, however, established a new Kansas Aggie 
discus record with a throw of 134 feet and 10?i inches; Roberts won second in the high hurdles. 
As usual, Brunkau won the javelin and was third in the shot. 

In the Valley Meet at Norman, Kimport and Gartner won third places and the mile relay 
crossed the tape in second. 

Kimport represented the Aggies in the National Intercollegiate Games at Chicago and placed 
fifth in the mile; his time for the distance was 4 minutes and 22.8 seconds. 


•• * •• '•>' 




FOR THE second consecutive year the Kansas Aggies won 
the Cross-Country Championship of the Missouri Valley. 

The team was well balanced, each member being about as 
good as the others. An outstanding characteristic of the team 
this year was the running of the Purple team in a group. They 
started out together and they finished together. In the meets 
with Kansas University and Missouri, the entire Aggie team 
finished the course arm in arm a minute or two before the first 
runner of the opponent's team came into view. 

The Valley Meet also was won comparatively easy as the 
Wildcat score was about half that of Ames who took second, 
the lowest score winning the race. 

The Aggies should have another excellent team next year 
as E. Rutherford is the only member of the team lost by gradua-

Captain Ralph Karns 

Two-letter Man 

Karns was responsible for keeping the infield on their 
toes and the entire team fighting to the last out. He led 
his team in batting and his home run with the bases loaded 
defeated Lang of Nebraska in his only Missouri Valley 
defeat in three seasons. "Shorty's" specialty was delivering 
a hit in a pinch. He plays shortstop and he is considered 
the best in the Valley. His teammates, showing their 
confidence in him as a leader, re-elected him captain for 
the 1926 season.

I » 

Lyle Munn 


Two-letter Man 

"Tiny" was a great fly chaser, covering more than his share 
of the garden. He gave the pitchers real support and was one 
of the surest fielders in the conference. His batting was re- 
sponsible for the Aggies drubbing Kansas University in their 
last two games of the season. 



Joe Greer 


One-letter Man 

Greer was an old head at the game and a "speed ball" 
artist. He could pitch, field, and sock the pill. Joe was in the 
box when the Aggies defeated Nebraska, and Lang, five to one. 
He is at present pitching for Mobile of the Southern Association. 

Bernard J. Conroy 

Three-letter Man 


Bernard was one of the most conscientious men on the squad, 
always in condition, a willing worker, and a type of athlete always 
out to win. He was the only pitcher to defeat Oklahoma, 1925 
Missouri Valley Champions.

G. R. Huey 

Bernard C. Harter Eldorado 

One-letter Man 

Harter was an alternate outfielder, playing any outfield posi- 
tion. He was used as a pinch hitter in practically every game. 
His batting average for the season was over five hundred. 



Two-letter Man 

His assignment was the "hot corner" which he guarded in 
big league style. "Rex" was a good fielder, possessed a good 
throwing arm, and was an excellent judge of ground balls. He 
rarely permitted a bunt to be registered as a hit.

L. P. Caraway Logansport, La. 

One-letter Man 

Caraway was an excellent relief pitcher. He defeated the 
strong St. Marys Club thirteen to one, the first time they have 
been defeated by a college baseball team in several years. 

Page 220 

Merle Miller Washington, D. C. 

One-letter Man 

A "pepper box" behind the bat, "Bing" was always talking 
it up, encouraging his pitcher and teammates. A crafty back- 
stop, always on the job. He caught five straight foul flies in 
the victory over Oklahoma. 


W. H. Lutz Sharon Springs 

Two-letter Man 

He started at the keystone sack and was later shifted to 
centerfield where he finished his college career. He saved the 
last game with Kansas University by a spectacular running catch 
of a Jayhawker drive. 

Albert Cunningham Manhattan 

One-letter Man 

His injury in the middle of the season kept him out of several 
games. He was a good outfielder and a fair batter. He should 
land a regular position next season.

t "mm i 

C. W. Brion 


One-letter Man 

Being tall and rangy Brion was an ideal man for 
the initial base. "Jud" could handle bad throws in 
such a manner that many times the fielder was saved 
from committing an error. The feature of his work 
was his judgment in backing up all plays around the 

Don Meek 

Ida i 

One-letter Alan 

Don was the Aggie speed-merchant at pilfering 
the bases. Many times he was used as a substitute 
base runner in the hit-and-run game where he was 
able to score on account of his speed.

1925 Partial! 

THE 1925 Wildcat Baseball Club made a splendid showing in the Missouri 
Valley. Besides winning third, they wrecked the Valley record of Oklahoma 
University and Pitcher Lang of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. 

The Aggies have defeated Kansas University seven games out of the last 
eight they have played. The Jayhawkers won that one game last year by a 
score of 2 to 1 after a thrilling battle. 

The Kansas State boys had their eye on the ball when Nebraska invaded 
their camp. Pitcher Lang who had not lost a Valley game in his three years of 
play, was given the assignment to tame the Wildcats. But with all his speed he 
could not get the ball past the Aggie batters and he was defeated 5 to 1. 

The Aggies also spoiled the record of Oklahoma University, Missouri Valley 
champions, by defeating the Sooners 3 to 0. "Bing" Miller thought that he 
was playing the outfield and caught a half-dozen foul flies off the wire and out 
of the crowd. Conroy was at his best in serving the Owen men a mixture of 
"shoots" and curves. 

St. Marys was also given a demonstration of the ability of the Aggies to 
"upset the dope" when Caraway baffled their heavy-hitting artillery. The 
Aggies, on the other hand, unmercifully bounded the ball to all corners of their 
new field and the score-board read, Aggies 13, St. Marys 1. This was the first 
college game that St. Marys has lost in several years.

THE PUGILISTS enjoyed the most successful season of 
their history this year. They won the Missouri Valley 
Championship and were claiming the championship of the 
Middle West as the season ended. 

The Aggies had to go out of the conference to secure 
matches this year. Notre Dame, who had defeated the Navy, 
was defeated at South Bend, four to three, by the Wildcats. 
The Aggies tried to obtain a schedule of bouts in the East 
but were unable to negotiate a suitable arrangement of dates. 
Ames was defeated twice by the Wildcat mitt artists, four 
to three at Ames, and five to two in the home ring. All will 
remember the bout in which Pearson, seeking revenge, scored 
a knockout victory over Corey of Ames. 

Captain C. F. Hoelzel and O. E. Walgren were the only 
undefeated members of the Aggie 1926 Boxing Team. 

Seven men were awarded letters: Captain C. F. Hoelzel, 

145-lb. class; O. E. Walgren, 115-lb. class; L. W. Bailey, 

125-lb. class; T. H. Hays, 158-lb. class; C. H. Towle, 175-lb. class; and Z. Pearson, 

heavyweight. C. N. Hinkle showed up well and should be a valuable man next 


Boxing has become a popular sport in the Valley and the interest it receives 
from the Aggie students has firmly established the sport at this college. 



Top row — Knoth (Coach) 

Second row — Richards, Bailey, Dean, Pearson, Dalyrimple, Hays 

Bottom row — Hendrix, Walgren, Hoelzel, Towle, Schultz 


THE FIRST match of the season which was held with the 
Y. M. C. A. of Kansas City resulted in a tie; each team 
winning three falls. 

The Nebraska Cornhuskers were the next opponents of 
the Aggie matmen, and the Huskers won from all of the 
Wildcats except Captain Walgren, who tossed his man in 
professional style. 

The meet at Lawrence with Kansas University was very 
closely contested, the Jayhawkers winning by a score of 19 
to 15. When the Jayhawkers journeyed to Manhattan the 
Wildcat grapplers reversed the score. Captain Walgren 
entered the ring with a badly injured knee but easily pinned 
his man. Pearson's victory over Freese by a fall, won the 
match, 18 to 16. 

The Missouri Valley meet was held at Oklahoma A. & M., 
and the Aggies were represented by Captain Walgren, Pearson, 
Hendrix and Hinz. "Shorty" Walgren won second in the 
115-lb. class, Hinz third in the 158db. class, and Hendrix third in the 135-lb. 

Those winning their letter this season were: Captain Walgren, Pearson, 
Hinz, Schopp, and Lobenstein. 

Captain Walgren has been a hard worker for the Purple in both boxing and 
wrestling and his influence put a determined spirit in the Aggie men. Captain- 
elect Hinz, though a capable leader, will find it hard to fill the shoes of Walgren.

E. A. Knoth 

L. P. Washburn 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR E. A. KNOTH, who was connected with the 
Physical Education Department for the past five and one-half years, had 
direct charge of the classes in physical education. He also supervised intra- 
mural athletics. Under his guidance these special branches of physical training 
have made wonderful progress. Fraternities, independent clubs and individuals 
have taken great interest in intramural games, and over one thousand students 
have been enrolled in these contests. 

Mr. "Bud" Knoth left the Department at the beginning of the second 
semester in order to enter the commercial field. 

As a result of the progress and the growing interest in Physical Educa- 
tion at K. S. A. C, the College has included in its curriculum a four-year course 
in Physical Education and Training leading to a B. S. degree. 

Upon receiving the approval of the Board of Administration, the authorities 
of the College decided to fill the place of Mr. Knoth with a man prepared 
thoroughly in this line of work. 

After combing the field rather completely, they offered the position to Mr. 
Louis P. Washburn, a graduate of Carlton College and also of Springfield College, 
Springfield, Mass. He also completed his work for a Master's Degree at Spring- 

For nine years he was in charge of the Physical Education program for the 
public schools of Syracuse, New York. He spent two years at Duluth and two 
years at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in charge of recreation work for these cities. 

We feel certain that under the wise direction of Prof. Washburn that the 
four-year course in Physical Education will prosper, and that the intramural 
program will be carried on with renewed enthusiasm.

GIRLS on the hill whose interests follow athletics, a good sportsmanship, 
and physical efficiency among women, are banded together in the Women's 
Athletic Association. This year eighty were actively interested in the organi- 

Membership in the Athletic Association is open to any woman student who 
has earned and reported one hundred points in any of the various recognized 
fields of sports. Points are given in hockey, basket ball, swimming, tennis, 
track and archery, as well as for hiking not less than thirty miles and perfect 
attendance in gymnasium classes. Passing the Red Cross Life Saving tests, also 
adds points to a girl's credit as does a lead in Frivol or the May Fete. 

A manager selected from the members of the organization is in charge of 
each branch of sport sponsored. 

The events of the year in which W. A. A. touches the entire student body 
are Frivol, stunt night and the school dance sponsored by the Association; and 
Annual Women's Day, arranged by the W. A. A. and the Physical Education 
Department. Final contests in track, baseball, and tennis are held by the girls 
on the campus grounds during the day and the affair closed with a May fete in 
the evening.

THE members of the Women's "K" Fraternity are those girls who have won 
a "K" sweater through participation in various kinds of athletics. When 
a girl has earned 1,200 points she is entitled to a sweater and an Old English 
"K." The "K" is an Old English one to distinguish it from the blockdetter 
Ks worn by the men. These sweaters are presnted to the girls by the Women's 
Athletic Association, although each girl pays half of the cost of her sweater. 

The number of points required for a sweater is high and, consequently, 
there are only a limited number of girls who receive them. The girls who wear 
"K" sweaters are the leaders in athletics in the college. They stand for good 
sportsmanship, constructive co-operation and interest in gymnasium work, 
and the promotion of high efficiency in all lines of women's physical education. 
Only a girl of "K" standing is eligible to the office of president of the W. A. A.

BY starting, this year, a four-year course in physical education for women 
of K. S. A. C, what promises to be a new era in this department of the 
college has been opened. With the first two semesters of the new course being 
offered this year and the three advanced years to be added the next three years, 
the new subjects are being gradually added to the curriculum of the depart- 
ment, the first girls receiving their B. S. degrees in the new course in 1929. 

Miss Ruth Morris, head of the department of Physical Education for Women, 
is largely responsible for the new course being offered here. If her plans are 
carried to completion, rifle practice, fencing, horseback riding, and soccer will 
be some of the new activities offered soon. Educational methods of teaching 
physical education, anatomy and kinesiology are some of the typical subjects 
that are expected to be offered under the new order. 

In addition to her duties as head of women's athletics, Miss Morris also 
coaches hockey and archery and instructs in dancing. She is a graduate of 
the University of Wisconsin. 

On the coaching staff with Miss Morris are Miss Geneva Watson, graduate 
of the University of Chicago, Miss Myra Wade, graduate of Oberlin College, 
and graduate assistant, Ruth Trent. 

The short list of typical subjects given here gives some idea of the variety 
of studies the department has been offering: Formal gymnastics, basket ball, 
hockey, baseball, swimming, tennis, track, and archery. There is also instruc- 
tion in the basic sciences — chemistry, zoology, embryology, physiology, hygiene, 
anatomy, therapeutics, kinesiology, and physical examination and diagnosis-

Mr. Wayne Rogler, 

Business Manager, 

Kansas State Agricultural College, 

Manhattan, Kansas, 

Dear Mr. Rogler: 

It is always hard to judge beauty merely 
from photographs. Personality is an even greater aid 
toward feminine charm than special physical endowment. 
And, of course, personality is absent in still photographs. 

It is with pleasure, however, that I at- 
tach ray selection of the six most attractive young ladie6 
among those whose photographs were submitted. Each member 
of this sextette has a type of beauty distinctly different 
from that of the others, yet in each case there is an 
outstanding characteristic which led to my selection. 

The young lady's photograph which I have 
selected for fifth place is only a profile and it is hard 
to Judge properly." 

With all good wishes for the success of 
the "Royal Purple", I am 

Yours truly, 

Cil*Jl Q>.d*MJUL.

THE ART of dramatization in the college has made a rapid advance in the 
past decade. This has been due mainly to the increase in the enrollment in 
the school and the interest which the students show for dramatic work. The 
Purple Masque Fraternity, organized in December, 1915, from the K. S. A. C. 
Dramatic Club, is the nucleus around which all stage events center. Previous 
to the establishment of the organization, the literary societies had carried on 
drama until the founding of Purple Masque under the direction of Prof. James 
G. Emerson, then head of the public-speaking department. 

Every year the fraternity produces two major plays, fall and spring, and 
sponsors numerous dramatic sketches, stunts, plays for extension work and chapel 

Under the able directing of H. Miles Heberer, who succeeded Earl G. Mc- 
Donald, now with the Theatre Guild in New York, the Masque has met with 
unusual success in all of its productions the past season. 

The fall play was given earlier this year in order to avoid conflicts with 
competitive programs. It was Lewis Beach's comedy drama of American do- 
mestic life, The Goose Hangs High. The annual fall tour included Florence, 
Topeka, Junction City and Abilene, on the 4th, 5th, 9th and 10th of November, 
respectively. The home performance was on Friday, November the sixth, and 
was received by a large and appreciative audience. 

The cast of characters included : 

Bernard Ingals . 
Eunice Ingals 
Noel Derby 
Leo Day 

Julia Murdock

The chapel play this year was Helena's Husband, a satire on the Helen of 
Troy episode by Phillip Moeller. It was given in ultra-modern dress with a unique 
futuristic setting painted by Ted Keller who also designed the setting for the 
fall and inter-society play. 

The cast of characters was as follows : 

Helen . 
Paris . 

Katherine King 

Velma Lockridge 

Jack Kennedy 

Ralph Mohri 

Lynn G. Fayman 

The play selected for the spring festival week is The Swan, by Franz Moeller. 
It is a play whose characters are modern royalty and one which required elaborate 
settings and beautiful costumes. It was a difficult play to produce, but according 
to the appreciation and response of the audience, successfully ended a very active 
and productive year for Purple Masque.

SEVERAL requests for a girls' pep organization were made, and as a result one was organized 
at K. S. A. C. in January, 1926. 

A cash prize was offered for a peppy name for the organization. The name chosen 
"Purple Pepsters," was submitted by Mike Ahearn. 

Any girl who has won 250 points in the Women's Athletic Association may become a member 
of the "Purple Pepsters." When she has won 500 points she is awarded an emblem, bearing the 
letters W. A. A., which is worn on the jacket. 

The uniform dress is a white skirt and purple jacket. 

The purpose of the organization is to promote college spirit, a feeling of loyalty to our Alma 
Mater, and to "pep up" the athletic contests of the college. 

At the first formal meeting of the organization, Thelma Coffin was chosen President, Loraine 
Smith, Secretary and Treasurer, and Velma Lockridge, Cheer Leader.

DURING THE season of 1925-1926, Kansas Aggie debaters have carried 
out one of the most extensive as well as successful inter-collegiate programs 
that the school has ever had. 

In the Missouri Valley Debating League teams from Drake University, 
Kansas University, South Dakota University, and Oklahoma University were 
met and the latter two defeated. A team of two men and the coach made an 
extensive trip to the Atlantic coast. This team was gone three weeks and debated 
teams at the University of Pittsburg, Amherst University, Pennsylvania State 
College, Michigan Agricultural College, Purdue University, Northwestern Uni- 
versity, and Washington University of St. Louis. That this team made a very 
creditable showing is evidenced by the fact that there was not a single decision 
against it. In 1925 two varsity debaters traveled to the Pacific Coast and 
return — this year to the Atlantic, and present plans call for a like trip to the Gulf 
in the Spring of 1927. 

Forensic honor was won for the school this year by the varsity women's 
team which won the championship of the Kansas Inter-collegiate Women's 
Debating League. The girls had contests in the League with Bethany, Ottawa, 
College of Emporia, Emporia Teachers, Washburn, and Sterling. The only 
defeat was at the hands of Washburn, whose team won a two-to-one decision 
from the Aggie co-eds. The women also had one contest with Park College at 
Parkville, Missouri. 

The freshmen men had debates with Bethany, Salina Wesleyan, Park 
College, and Pittsburg Normal. These contests were no-decision affairs. 

The varsity men also met teams from the Universities of Arizona and 
Wyoming which traveled to the eastern coast. A team of three Aggie men won 
the Kansas Triangular Extempore Speaking Contest which is held each year 
between representatives of Washburn, Emporia Normal, and K. S. A. C. An 
Aggie representative placed first in the extempore speaking contests at the 
National Pi Kappa Delta Convention held at Estes Park and fourth in the 
Annual Missouri Valley Oratorical Contest. 

The principal topics discussed in debate this year were the Mitchell plan 
for reorganization of the air forces and the child-labor problem. Many of the 
debates were extemporaneous and no-decision. The coaching has been done by 
Professor H. B. Summers, who was assisted by Mr. Robert Hedberg in coaching 
the freshmen women and Mr. Car! Taylor in coaching the freshmen men.

3nter=is>octetp Council 

TNTER-SOCIETY COUNCIL is composed of a group of literary 
-W- society members, there being a Junior and a Senior representa- 
tive from each of the eight societies on the hill. 

The Council was organized in 1918 by Dr. MacArthur who felt 
that there was a need for some organization to establish and 
maintain co-operation between the literary societies. Thus through 
its different chairmen, it endeavors to uphold this standard through- 
out the year. 

In the fall of 1925 the annual series of Inter-society Debates 
was held under the direction of the debate chairman, Rachel 
Working. When the smoke cleared away, the Brownings had won 
the much-coveted cup and the Alpha Betas were runners-up. 

Another annual event is the oratorical contest, which never 
fails to draw a good crowd. This contest is fostered by the Council 
and affords an excellent opportunity for literary society members 
to secure valuable training along this line. 

The Athenians were awarded the loving cup for having the 
highest number of points during the school year of 1924-25. The 
point system is maintained by the Council in order to stimulate 
interest and promote a friendly rivalry between the various societies. 
A certain number of points are given for activities, such as Glee 
Club, Purple Masque, Zeta Kappa Psi, Pi Kappa Delta, that 
represent work along literary society lines. The other points are 
based on scholastic standing, attendance, participation in debate, 
and other like activities. This is the second year the Athenians 
have won the cup. 

On March 12, "In the Next Room" was given as the Annual 
Inter-society play, one of the most important activities of the 
literary societies. The cast is composed of literary society mem- 
bers entirely chosen from the separate literary societies. The 
play is sponsored by the Council, managed by the Play Chairman, 
and coached by the Public Speaking Department. The proceeds 
from the play are used to defray the expenses for the Oratorical 
Contest and other activities. Thus the Council is a self-supporting

THE INTER-SOCIETY DEBATES this year were held under a new system. 
In the past, there has been a great deal of trouble with the elimination 
system, necessitating the changing of the question as much as three times. Under 
the new system each society has an affirmative and a negative team which debates 
the opposing team from each of the other societies. Then the winning society 
is determined by the number of debates won by the two teams. 

This year the Brownings won the cup beyond dispute. Both of their teams 
went through the entire series of debates without a defeat, which was a truly 
remarkable record, reflecting excellent work on the part of the girls debating 
and the coach.

THE 80th Annual Oratorical contest was held this year on April 17th. Interest 
was shown at an early date and the orators from the various societies were 
working on their orations from the beginning of the year. This contest is per- 
haps the most important event sponsored by the Council and has come to be 
one of the great annual events. The chairman of Oratoricals for this year was 
Earl Hinden of the Hamilton Society. 

Unfortunately, due to the late date of the Oratorical Contest this year the 
names and pictures of the winners had to be omitted.

KANSAS State is experiencing a growing interest in oratory. The institu- 
tion has for a number of years maintained a high standing in all types of 
forensic work. Zeta Kappa Psi, national forensic fraternity for women, has in 
the past encouraged both debate and oratory among the women students. The 
Alpha Chapter of the organization, which was established at Kansas State, was 
recently consolidated locally with Pi Kappa Delta in the interest of concentrated 
effort in this immediate field. 

Each year at Kansas State Agricultural College there is held an orate rical 
contest open to both men and women students and sponsored by the literary 
societies. Kansas State is a member of the Missouri Valley Oratorical Associa- 
tion, and has won a first, three seconds, a third and a fourth place in six con- 
secutive years. Kansas State participated through the local chapter in the 
national convention contest of Pi Kappa Delta Forensic Fraternity, and is also 
a member of the Kansas Women's Oratorical Association. 

In the past two years Kansas State has entered several extempore speaking 
contests with exceptionally good results. Last year at the Kansas Pi Kappa 
Delta convention at Emporia, Robert Hedburg placed first in the men's extempore 
contest, and Helen Correll first and Mary Marcene Kimball fourth in the women's. 
Robert Hedburg also placed first at the Pi Kappa Delta convention at Pasadena, 

This year at the triangular meet with Washburn and Emporia, in which 
each school entered three men, Frank Glick placed first, Robert Hedburg second, 
and Carl Taylor tied for fourth, giving the meet to this school. Robert Hed- 
burg placed first at the national Pi Kappa Delta convention in Fstes Park, at 
which schools from every section of the country were represented. Mary Mar- 
cene Kimball went to the finals, but failed to place in this event.

ALPHA Chapter was organized at the LTniversity of Illinois in 1911 by Rev. S. E. Fisher. 
In 1913, Beta Chapter was organized at K. S. A. C. under the leadership of Rev. J. David 
Arnold. Later, Bethany Circle became a national organization, with a membership of 
seven chapters at the present time. The Tenth National Convention was held at Columbia, 
Missouri, April 17, 18, 19, 1925. The object of Bethany Circle is "To establish and maintain 
a friendly relationship among the student girls of Christian Church preference; to make the work 
of Bethany Circle a real means of Christian influence among the girls by arousing an interest in 
the church and its various departments; to maintain as individuals a high ideal of scholarship, 
to strive for a broad, sympathetic interest in human activities, and to develop a rich and gracious

KAPPA PHI was organized at the University of Kansas in 1916 to form a closer association 
among our Methodist women who are students in the State and independent universities, 
to make our work among student women of our denomination more effective and sufficient; 
to maintain a more serviceable organization to take care of our incoming freshmen each year, 
and to provide in a college woman's way religious training and wholesome social life, that we 
may be stronger, more efficient women of the church of tomorrow. There are now fourteen 
active chapters.

It is rumored that Robert Baehler has had engraved on his pin the following 
inscription: "For exhibition purposes only." 

What is so rare as a day in June? Flunk slips in Phi Kappa Phi mail boxes. 

Since the Pi Phis have painted their house, the Alpha Xi Deltas have 
fixed their lawn, the Kappa Delts have built a sidewalk, the Sig Eps have 
chartered a bus, the Phi Delts have bought roller skates, and the Delta Taus 
have acquired a Southern accent, one would hardly know the dear old Alma Mater. 
But the Sig Alphs and Betas are as neighborly as ever. 

During rush week one of the rushees was asked by a Y. W. member if she 
had a Big Sister. The rushee thought it over, simpered, and then said, "No, 
but I have two big brothers, and one of them is a Beta." Could glory be 
greater? Another in answer to the same question said she was an only child. 

Why did the Kappa Delt pledge refuse to give Max Brumbaugh a dance 
at the Fireman's Ball? 

And that is the reminder of the fact that Scribbler's Scramble turned out 
to be hard-boiled. 


What Deans of Women have told freshman girls: 

"Now girls, never say soup when you are with a boy because it puckers up 
your lips and makes him want to kiss you." 

"Boys may like to play around with the fast girls but its the good, pure 
girls they marry." 

"How can you expect boys to resist you when you paint yourselves up like 
sticks of candy?" 

"You must never whistle when with a boy." (Same result as saying "soup.") 

"Now I knew a girl once and she was a good, sweet girl, but one day I saw 
her going down the street between two boys, hanging onto their arms, and 
laughing — now I knew she was a good girl but what do you suppose other people 

"Whenever you are at a dance and the boy seems to be enjoying it, drop 
your handkerchief."

An open rush week for the women's organizations presents great possi- 

The big point, of course, will be to once get a girl in one's possession. And 
that will call for great originality and slickness. 

For example, an organization might: 

1. Have a girl on every incoming train. This girl should be quietly 
dressed so she can sneak up on the desired girls and inject morphine into their 
arms. At the station it would be a simple matter to shovel the drugged rushees 
into trucks and ship them to the house where pledge pins could be easily attached. 

2. Have the rush captain say to every girl, as she comes to keep her first 
date, "Don't you want to come in here, dear, and see our prize painting?" Once 
inside the room the R. C. would jump out and lock the door. 

3. Or it might use one of any number of trapping methods. 

As to the preparation for such a rush week a miscellany of suggestions might 
and should be made: 

1. Every house should be barricaded against the attacks from parties 
seeking rushees. 

2. Actives should have heads shaved for the week to prevent the enemy 
from getting a grip on them. 

In order to prevent animosities between the different sororities and to pro- 
mote general good will an Open Rush Week Entente ha? been formed:

I know not where thou art— 

I only know thou wert 

On my desk, 

Peaceful and content, 

A moment back ; 

But as I turned my back 

(To light a pill) 

Some heartless wretch 

Went south with thee. 

I know not who he w T as, 

Nor shall I investigate 


It may have been 

The guy I stole thee from.

T\/TEN and women who think straight, 
who have initiative, who have confi- 
dence and dare to do, who co-operate with 
others — these are the finest accomplish- 
ments of colleges and universities. Through- 
out Kansas, and all over the world, K. S. 
A. C. men and women are paying a wonder- 
ful tribute to the school by their leadership. 

But there is another and an impersonal 
type of leadership — that of the printed page. 
It is always an ally of the personal leader. 
In the great agricultural state of Kansas, 
this impersonal leadership is embodied in 
Kansas Farmer, a farm journal that has 
served the Kansas people for more than a 
quarter-century. Thru it the leadership of 
individuals is made state-wide. 

Kansas Farmer is proud of the fact that 
two men with degrees from K. S. A. C. are 
largely responsible for its popularity and

a great many that you don't care for. 
That's natural, when you consider the 
great diversity of tastes such a store must 

It's a problem, selecting the right thing 
from the thousands of articles that are 
offered. In this respect we have been 
singularly successful, and we believe it is 
because we have made our selections with 
a particular kind of customer in mind. 
We have chosen Society Brand Clothes
